How long will I have braces?
The length of time you have braces will vary from case to case. Usually, you can expect to have your braces on for 1-2 years. If you want to have your braces on for less time – be sure to ask your parents about AcceleDent® which can speed up your time in braces by up to 50%. After your braces, you can use a retainer on a personally-designed schedule to keep your best smile.
What foods do I need to avoid with your braces on?
The style and brand of braces you get will determine which foods you can’t eat. You should avoid hard foods as they can break braces. You can always enjoy eating your fruits and veggies by cutting them into wedges or strips. There are even some types of braces that don’t limit your diet at all!
Are braces painful?
While you won’t usually experience any pain during appointments, there may be a brief period of discomfort after adjustments, typically for only a few days. We help you keep discomfort to a minimum. Read some of our patient testimonials as they describe their experience.
